Not untouchable: Wendell Moore Jr.
Joining the Minnesota Timberwolves as their only first-round draft pick in the last three seasons, Wendell Moore unfortunately had about as forgettable a rookie season as a player could have. Playing just 153 total minutes and playing 5.3 minutes per game in 29 contests, Moore never really had much of an opportunity to showcase his talent.
The Timberwolves acquired Moore from the Dallas Mavericks on draft night last June, with the hopes that he could evolve into a rotation player. There is certainly still hope that he has a future in this league, as his skillset speaks for itself.
Offensively, Moore is not a high scorer but he is a willing passer that does a lot of the little things correctly. Add in his solid on-ball defense, and there is unquestionably a world in which he becomes a valuable all-around player in Minnesota, a la Caleb Martin for the Miami Heat.
Wendell Moore is still under contract with the Timberwolves for the next three seasons, but the team will have a club option that they can choose to exercise or not after the 2023-24 and 2024-25 seasons. If he is unable to earn more playing time, there is no reason to suggest Moore will be untouchable in Minnesota’s future plans.
